Inspired by a landscape in which humans are forced into constant reverence with nature, a + s works premieres Dakota. The work investigates our mystical relationship with the brutality of natural elements, the elegies of trees and mountains, and how the vastness of land itself connects to the vastness of our most intimate selves. This work highlights the moments in which we interface with the whole of nature, which are often rare and elusive. As bodies move against this landscape, dancing becomes a kind of reconciliation and realization of this whole of nature that we constantly seek.
